Leave the Cocoon Behind

Posted on 27 July 2021

Our culture tends to worship the past and fear the future. We make statues to people who are gone, but fear the changes the future represents, and so tell stories about surviving a bad future where nothing about ourselves has changed. We need more stories where we represent ourselves as caring and mature people who can grow…and it is safe to do so. Growth is only loss in the way that a butterfly loses its cocoon. Understand that if you only focus on the cocoon, you won’t spread your wings and fly. The future can be better. We can make it so.

Peace and kindness,
